 o If
 a
 strike
 is
 declared
 for
 a
 trivial,
 unjust
 or
 unreasonable
 purpose,
 or
 if
 it
 is
 carried
 through
 unlawful
 means,
 the
 law
 will
not
sanction
it
and

will

it

 jurisdiction:
 right
 of
 employees
 to
 quit
 working
 because
 some
 fellow
 employee
 is
 obnoxious
 to
 them
 (unless
 an
 employment
contract
for
a
definite
period
intervenes,
or
the
 move
 is
 actuated
 by
 malice),
 the
 principle
 being
 that
 the
 employees
may
choose
not
only
employer
but
their
working
 associates.
 Right
 is
 subject

Surety

v.
NLRC
 Company
 effected
 a
 change
 in
 the
 seating
 arrangement
 of
 its
 personnel.
 4
 employees
 protested,
claiming
that
it
was
made
without
prior
 notice
 and
 was
 done
 to
 harass
 them
 as
 union
 members.
 Employees
 refused
 to
 stay
 at
 their
 designated
place.
Union
claimed
that
company
was
 guilty
of
ULP.
Union
went
on
strike.
 There
is
no
question
that
the
strike
was
prompted
by
 no
actual,
existing
ULP
committed.
Company
merely
 exercised
reasonable
prerogative.
 LOL
 
 The
 Court
 is
 at
 a
 loss
 how
 rearranging
 furniture
can
justify
a
4­month
long
strike.
 Union
officers
and
the
union
members
were
ordered
 dismissed.

Directories
Corporation
v.
Sanchez
 Does
 the
 union’s
 objection
 to
 the
 new
 company
 regulation
 automatically
 suspend
 its
 enforcement?
 Does
 the
 union
 objection
 justify
 the
 employees’
 disobedience
and
their
strike?
 Policy
 is
 within
 management
 prerogative
 to
 regulate,
 according
 to
 its
 own
 discretion
 and
 judgment.
The
SC
fails
to
see
how
the
objections
and
 accusations
 of
 the
 union
 justify
 the
 refusal
 of
 the
 representatives
 for
 submission
 of
 reports
 reflecting
 target
 revenues.
 Surely,
 compliance
 with
 their
 superiors’
 directives
 could
 not
 have
 foreclosed
 their
 demands
 for
 the

 revision

 or

 there
 was
 nothing
 to
 prevent

from

 Until
